"Odyssey of the Mind Deutschland e.V." was founded in November 2012. Beforehand the program was organized by "Germany International", a department of the Berlin-Brandenburg Association for International Affairs e.V. (BBAG). The change was only formal, as the new association still uses the same office in the BBAG building and is a member of BBAG itself.
Everybody can become a member of the association and be part of the decision-making process. The membership fee is very moderate: 15 EUR per annum, 5 EUR for students. The membership assembly elects the board and the extended board. Schools participating in the program pay a participation fee.
